SOUTH African cricket fans can relax - Jacques Kallis has no intention of retiring just yet.
Kallis, generally accepted as the best all-rounder in the world, told journalists he was still enjoying all three formats, and had no intention of retiring from any of them in the immediate future.
"The day I wake up and it gets too much, I'm not really enjoying it, I'll stop," said the 34-year-old, who is currently ranked the No 1 Test all-rounder and No 4 in one-day internationals.
"Certainly the Twenty20 format has been a new challenge for me, and something I've really enjoyed over the past two years. It's really helped me to develop my game - I've come a long way in the Twenty20 format. I think it will also help my Test cricket and my one-day cricket in terms of learning to improvise and other new things," he said.
"I'm still fit enough to keep going and I enjoy all three formats." - Sapa
